CEO’s Message

“Life is a beautiful gift of God and every day we at Tabba Heart Institute strives to enhance and improve it.”

It was in 1985 that I first witnessed my father, late Abdul Razzak Tabba, see a loved one fall victim to heart disease; his father late Abdul Aziz Hashim Tabba had developed a heart condition and needed urgent treatment. At that particular point, my father realized the non-existence of a facility offering treatment for cardiac diseases in Pakistan.

Though he was able to fly in doctors from the UK for my grandfather’s treatment, the whole episode served as an eye-opener and eventually inspired my father to establish a state-of-the-art cardiac care hospital.

After years of research and feasibilities, the foundation for Tabba Heart Institute (THI) was laid in 2002 and it took another three years for the facility to be completed and be fully operational.

In March 2005, the then Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mr. Shaukat Aziz formally inaugurated THI.

Late Abdul Razzak Tabba, my father and the founding chairman of THI, worked tirelessly for four years, devoting all his time, energy and resources to finish the project. He often went out of his way to ensure that the best and the latest equipment was acquired and installed and that the services of highly qualified, competent, experienced and dedicated professionals were available at THI.

Unfortunately, within two months of the inauguration of the hospital, my father passed away on May 19, 2005. It is worth contemplating that my father passed away due to heart failure, just when THI was almost ready to perform its first major heart surgery.

God Almighty has His own ways of doing things and we have to surrender to His will. I consider myself privileged and fortunate that I now have the responsibility of spearheading this institute.

Though none can ever match my father’s selflessness and level of responsibility, we at THI take guidance from his deeds.

The THI team takes pride and aims to provide the best treatment and facilities to cardiovascular patients. Currently, THI offers the following major facilities:

Angiography:
  1. Coronary and Peripheral Angioplasty
  2. Complex Coronary/Aortic Surgeries
  3. Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  4. Echocardiogram
  5. Nuclear Stress Test
  6. Holter Monitoring

At every stage, highly qualified and experienced cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons supervise the preventive and rehabilitative processes.

In view of the fundamental noble objectives of the project, THI has kept its charges for treatment and services at an extremely affordable level for the welfare of the underprivileged.

To us at THI, providing quality medical care to all regardless of their financial status is important. We comprise a team of skilled medical professionals with an extensive experience of assisting the highly risked cardiac patients, each of the patients facilitated with an assigned nurse for their care and support.
